Ho ho ho….Christmas Ornaments and Gifts Challenge

The days are getting shorter and colder (at least at HQ), so it’s time to start thinking about Christmas with our Christmas Challenge!

We loved the results and the entries of our Christmas Ornaments Challenge last year, so we’re organizing it again! Think reindeers, christmas trees, christmas balls or think about anything you want to give someone with Christmas.


For this challenge we’d like you to make a christmas ornament or gift in polyamide.

One of the winning designs last year by Felic Gfeller

We will select 1 winning design. The winner will get the print of their design, a 50€ ($69 or 6,714 JPY)  3D printing voucher and Autodesk Premium Membership and an Instructables Pro Membership.

Note that the jury selects upon the 3D renders you put online, so make sure to make a very clear, visible render.

This challenge is open to all designers, professional and amateur, regardless of sex, age or nationality.

Submissions will be accepted up to 23:59 Central European Time, November 24th, 2013.
